Ryanair, Europe's largest international airline, today (7 November) opened its Bristol base by operating flights for the first time from Bristol to Budapest, Derry, Knock, Milan, Porto, Riga and Wroclaw.
These will be followed tomorrow by inaugural Ryanair flights to Bratislava, Dinard, Poznan and Rzeszow, and to Katowice on Saturday 10 November.
A further two ski destinations to Salzburg and Turin will start 19 and 22 December 2007 respectively.
Ryanair launched eight new routes from its Shannon base to Birmingham, Fuerteventura, Kaunas (Lithuania), Leeds, London Luton, Riga, Tenerife and its first domestic service from Shannon to Dublin. Ryanair’s 31 Shannon routes will deliver two million passengers to the mid-west in the coming year, while supporting 2,000 jobs in the region.
Very welcome news for us travellers. But to much focussed on Eastern Europe in my opinion, I would have wanted a few more 'sexier' cities

Erm... have you ever been to Eastern Europe? Talk about sexy...
Lol, I know.... been there... I just meant to say that a lot of new routes are focussed on Eastern Europe, just spread it out more across Europe and I'm happy. Still planning to fly every other weekend next year... so far I'm on a 45 euro average incl tax fare..

Quoting AC747 (Reply 4): FR are really putting down a marker at SNN - "Stay out. This is our airport now" !
Im pleased to see SNN getting business because its been in the press for all the wrong reasons lately and I believe that it must attract routes like this to survive as a business. SNN's days as an artifically subsidised long haul airport are coming to an end and I expect EI to attempt to move its SNN l/h flights to BFS eventually. I do hope they get their LHR route back but I cant see it happening.
